i think that we won't really know the magnitude, however, of all of these fraud allegations until the iec releases the preliminary results and we understand from the ecc, the elections complaint commission, how many complaint these received and what they are doing to investigate it. >> ifill: you talk about these governmental wash dog group, the independent election commission, the electoral complaints commission, do we know they are poised to do something about these allegations, we heard about vote buying, something as outright as that. >> that's true. the independent elections commission which is responsible for administering the elections and tabulating the results was severely criticized last year for its roll in not preventing fraud and not addressing it after the election occurred. that has had some management changes at the top that i think are very positive. and there's a lot more optimistic that they will be more proactive, more transparent and more responsible in dealing with the fraud this time around. the election complaints commission used to have three international members of it, on which i was a part.
